Assumptive of any projects that go through the full development process with the objective to sell-off plan to active investors, HCG would manage the exit through a global network of agents.
We will assist in sourcing any necessary finance, and analyzing the cost of debt alongside construction cost and delay contingencies to asses project viability. Utilizing previous project case studies, and contacts, we are able to both source cost efficient financing to maximize return for investors, whilst keeping risk to a minimum.

Whether it be a pre-existing site, land with planning, or otherwise, the first step is to complete a strict financial appraisal on a potential investment. Through in depth knowledge of the markets we work within we are able to accurately analyse potential returns along side risk.
It is important to have experience moving through the planning process in the U.K. as well as contacts to assist with the process. HCG help advise from pre-ap alongside architects through the entirety of the process.
Alongside our U.K. partners HCG full manage the entirety of the development process. From a partnership perspective we are very open to working with hands on or hands off investors. Development can be a hugely time consuming process and we ensure that this is managed entirely by HCG if desired.
